How To Talk To My Boyfriend
Dear BeingGirl Experts, I have a problem and I hope that you will be able to help me. My boyfriend and I have been dating for only two weeks, and I have a hard time talking to him. There is always a long, long silence every time we talk. I don't know what to do! I like him a lot, and he likes me a lot too. What do I do? Thanks, Nina --- Dear Nina, When you start a relationship with someone new you are not very familiar with, it can be hard to make conversation. Ask him about things in his life you know are important to him—family, sports, hobbies, etc. Find out his likes and dislikes. When he talks, pay attention to what he is saying. If he mentions something he is doing, you can ask him about it later. Also, share with him what is happening in your life. Tell him about your daily activities, hobbies, sports, etc. Try not to spend so much time together and on the phone/online/texting until there is nothing left to say! The more things you do as individuals, the more you will have to discuss when you do talk or get together. Also, when you get together, try to choose activities to get you talking. Try a new activity together, for instance, rather than doing what you always do. If conversation continues to be a struggle, you may need to consider whether the two of you have enough in common to have a relationship. Good luck, Your BeingGirl Experts
